AP talks to Virtuoso recipients

The Associated Press talked to the 2008 Virtuoso Award recipients at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival in a forum setting. It's a very funny interview, but Cotillard only spoke up once.

All of hot young Hollywood is not in this room, but it sure feels that way. Posing for photos on an antique sofa are Casey Affleck, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Amy Ryan, and James McAvoy: four first-time Oscar-nominated actors, and the leading man of an Oscar-nominated Best Picture contender.


AP: And what do you think you'll most remember about this time of your life?

Cotillard: I would say all the people I've met, and all the people I've talked with to share that work you're talking about. In France, we're not used to meeting so many people because there's not such a sha-bah-dah about this.

The rest of the interview -- which features James McAvoy being his usual, charming self -- can be found here.

Lovely. What that heck is a "sha-bah-dah"?

I think it's supposed to mean something like "hooplah"

Marion came in at #87 on Ask Men's list of Top 99 Women of 2008.

Don't want to make a whole post about it, because I hate those sorts of lists, but in case people are curious, there it is.
